Looking Out For Your Heart Health

Once you become a parent you tend to forget about your own needs and focus solely on your children. Of course, they are your priority, but what would happen to them if something happened to you?

A horrible circumstance to think about but a vital one. As a parent, your health is equally as important as your children’s as they need their parents to be fit, healthy and strong.

How else could you deal with a demanding baby, feisty toddler or temperamental teen? Or even all three!

Keeping your heart healthy is so important to your overall health and luckily it is never too late to start looking out for this vital organ.


Looking Out For Your Heart Health

Give Up Smoking

Smoking reduces the amount of oxygen in your blood and also damages your blood vessel walls that supply blood to your heart. Smokers are at an increased risk of heart-related diseases such as angina, stroke and/or heart attacks. The NHS has some great tips to get you started on your non-smoking journey today.  Vaporizing has become the ultimate way to get high for many because it’s healthier and smoother. If you’re not the type to keep up with new technology, you might be wondering what all the hype is about and how do vaporizers work. Vaporizers heat their contents to a specific temperature to create vapor for you to inhale. Rather than the smoke that comes with, well, smoking, this vapor is much kinder on the lungs.

Be Active

You don’t need to be training for a marathon or taking daily HIT classes to keep your heart healthy; regular and moderate exercise is just fine and even simply trying to sit less each day can make a difference.

Avoid Yo-Yo Dieting

One of the best ways to reduce your risk of heart-related problems is by maintaining a consistently healthy weight. Of course, if you are overweight you should try and get down to a healthy BMI, but it is better to remain at a steady weight throughout your life if possible.

Eat Healthily

A diet that is rich in vitamins and minerals is vital when it comes to keeping your heart healthy. As well as this, to prevent developing heart disease you should try to cut down on your salt intake, avoid saturated and trans fats, and cut back on the booze.

Take A Supplement

If you specifically want to help your heart, then a standard multivitamin is not the answer. You need to choose a supplement that includes specifics enzymes that will care for your cardiovascular system. Coenzyme Q10 is often referred to as the ‘powerhouse’ of enzymes for a healthy heart; look for supplements that contain ubiquinol (the form of CoQ10 that is naturally produced in your body and is most readily absorbed as a supplement) like these ones from healthmonthly.co.uk.

Tackle Depression

Those who suffer from depression are more likely to suffer from heart disease than those who do not. If you do feel low, anxious or depressed, make sure that you talk to someone about it; whether that be a family member, friend or medical professional.

Laughter Really Is The Best Medicine

Not literally, of course, but laughing out loud each day (or multiple times a day – there’s no limit) is actually good for your heart. Laughing can help lower your stress levels, reduce inflammation in your arteries, and increase your high-density lipoprotein levels – that’s your good cholesterol.

By even making one of the above changes to your lifestyle you are one step closer to a happier and healthier heart; so, what are you waiting for?

    Thank you for creating this list, I really liked that you reminded us to laugh. Being healthy is more than just following a routine! Have you looked into olive oil and MCT oil? The latest research shows that they improve our HDL/LDL cholesterol ratio, and intermittent fasting has been shown to improve inflammation and vascular aging. I hope that helps!
